Look for cute outfits to wear with leggings. 


Here are some tips to guide you to wear your leggings stylishly and comfortably.


How to Wear Leggings


1. Leggings in proper size

It is important that you wear leggings with the proper size. They should not be too tight or too loose. In that way, they can cover your legs perfectly. The correct fitted leggings will give you the most comfortable feeling to boost your confidence. For somebody types, leggings are not an option as will be unflattering for them.

Avoid wearing leggings if you have extra cellulite.


Tip: Fitting is important


2. Leggings are not pants; wear leggings as pants

Functionally, leggings can be considered as one of the various types of pants. If you can confidently step out of your home wearing pants, you can do the same wearing leggings also if is comfortable for you. If you are not revealing much by wearing leggings, it is fine to wear them. When you wear leggings as pants, pair with them with a longer jacket or top. Leggings and tunics are a good match. You can wear leggings with a skirt, dress or even with shorts.


Tip: When wearing as pants, pair with long tops or tunics


3. Shoes to wear with leggings

Never wear the leggings with a wrong pair of shoes. They look brilliant with sandals, flip-flops, knee-high boots and even with low-cut boots. Black shoes with black leggings will give you a tall look. When you wear leggings with pumps or heels, wear them in a matching color of your shirt to avoid a too trashy look. In matching colors, leggings can look good with moccasins and ballet flats also.


Tip: Pair them with the right shoes


4. Leggings length

Your favorite black leggings might have helped you look good in many occasions but the many times washing make them rise a few inches above the ankles or they have gone slack at the knee. If you notice it, then I'm sorry but it's time for saving them to wear at home and buy another pair with proper length to replace its place as your comfy legging pants.


Tip: Leggings should be long enough


5. Leggings are not jeggings

Don’t confuse jeggings with your leggings. Jean leggings are known as jeggings. They are a cross-over between jeans and other leggings and pants. A pair of tight and sleek looking jeggings cane spice up an ordinary dress, and you can replace them for pants. Jeggings in denim blue paired with a cream sweater and loafers can give you a classic look. A short top is not a match for leggings but they are welcome with jeggings. Before you go for jeggings ensure that your body shape is suitable to make you rock in them and beware that jeggings are not for all as they are really tight.


Tip: Jeggings are cross-over between jeans and leggings


6. Cute outfits with leggings

Tunics and short dresses work as trendy outfits with leggings. If you are looking for a holistic list of tops to wear with leggings, here is a couple you could try:


Knit dresses – brighter the better

Tunics

Asymmetric tops and tunics

Short dresses

Knitted sweaters – preferably long

Long cardigans

Sweater dresses

Tip: Mix-match leggings with a variety of tops and make unique leggings outfits.


7. Leggings at workplace

Before you wear leggings to work, ensure that they are allowed in your workplace dress code. Leggings can be looked as casual and playful nonetheless how nice looking they are and some offices are not in favor of them. So before you wear them to work, know if your office dress code allows it. Check out your colleagues wearing them as pants rather than pairing them up with skirts.


Tip: Wear leggings to work if that meets your office dress code


8. Leggings with tops

If you are wearing leggings to work, wear the ones which are made up of some fancy material. With cotton leggings, you may look casual. With fancy material leggings like leather leggings, suede leggings or dark denim leggings, you will obtain the dress up look. Always be careful to pair your leather leggings with a proper top and jacket along with a pair of matching shoes. Avoid patterned leggings to work. Solid colored leggings are good for work as they won’t look playful as patterned ones. Always pair your leggings with nice tops when you wear them to work. A tailored jacket over a simple shift dress will suit for cotton leggings. A loose top and a solid-color skirt can pair with your leggings, albeit the skirt is not too short. Pairing the leggings with a long sweater and belt around the sweater with high boots will look really nice. A pair of denim leggings with a tunic top and ballet flats is fitting apparel for casual Fridays. A scarf or a long chain necklace can add the charm.


Tip: Leggings come in a variety of styles, patterns & material. Research when wearing for work.



PS- For teens, a long top with leggings, a cute scarf and neutral colored shoes make a laid back attire for school. Make sure that your shirts cover your butt when you wear them for school. Bright colored underwears are not good with leggings, especially for cotton leggings. Find the right combination, you can rock with your leggings. Explore and mix-match with accessories to find unending unique combinations. Now that you know how to wear leggings, go on and show your style quotient.
